, and they really do look at me like i'm on medication when i tell them, the deficit is falling pretty sharply. this mode of fiscal restraint is grossly underappreciated. i will talk about that in a minute or two. this mood of fiscal restraint will persist as long as one thing continues and that is republican control of the house. toill leave it to dr. cook give us his analysis of where the houses added after the 2014 election. i think this theme has legs and will continue for quite some time. before this,d me what about all the gridlock in washington? i would agree that we look dysfunctional in this city but i would also say that we have had some fairly interesting breakthroughs in the last two or three months. we got a budget deal with paul ryan and patty murray. i think paul ryan is growing as a politician, not as reflexively conservative. i think he was willing to even look at some modest revenue increases. we got a farm bill. it wasn't great but we got a farm bill and most importantly, you see clear signs from the republican leadership in the house that they did not want a crisis over the
fight, the deficit battle. he had a very difficult re-election. just a month before, he gave an interview with black enterprise magazine he said, i'm not the president of black america. he didn't want that idea that he was favoring one particular group. i did an interview before that election. and i found out that when he came down with his senior aids just week bfers he got re-elected, he had a yellow note pad. even if this wasn't an issue, he put criminal justice reform on there and he started pushing -- gwen: we've got to go. michael's more in story in "time magazine." >> we have to leave to give you a chance to support your local pbs station. but our conversation will continue online on the "washington week" web cast extra. it streams live at 8:30 and all ek long at pbs.org/washingtonweek. and that's where you'll find my take and why 1997 was such a big year for "washington week." we're accepting birthday wishes. we'll see you next week. good night. >> corporate funding for "washington week" is provided by -- >> we went out and asked people a simple question -- how old
he is recommending for each show agency and the deficit projections for 10 years. they say it will be low work, but how to make at work. obama will not be including the chain cpi proposal. inflation is measured that would have the effect of lowering social security benefits and other federal benefits. the aarp andsed by liberals in congress. arguing itthat out, was a all a branch for republicans. not willing to do a big deal on the deficit in order to get things under control. by taking that out, they will lose 230 billion or so in deficit reduction. already we know one of the ways will be assuming the senate passes and immigration overall. go much does that cost you these are the kinds of things we will be looking for. perhaps the least effective budgets we have seen in years because congress are it has a toplines appropriations number for this year. they are are ready holding hearings. this is entitlement overhaul out of the midterm. how is the budget actually released today, and to are the surrogates that the white house is sending to capitol hill over the next coming da
moral about running up huge deficits, about out of control welfare bills. if we don't deal with these problems the whole country will be poor. i think we should listen to the words of george carey, the former archbishop of canterbury who said this. the churches should be aware of the dangers of blindly defending a gargantuan welfare budget that increases politician would cut as a matter of economic common sense. i think serious politicians have to engage in this and that should go for everybody. >> ed miliband. [shouting] >> mr. speaker, i join my honorable friend and the prime minister in congratulating team gb on a brilliant performance at the window limits but as the threat of floods passes there's thousands out of their homes. some are still underwater and hundreds of businesses and farms are still struggling to recover. the committee on climate change, the house of commons library and the uk statistical authority have all now said that government investment and flood defenses has fallen. in the light of this an event we have seen, does the prime minister think it's rig
that will be unveiled in about a week. he's going to turn away from deficit reduction, go to government spending. he doesn't call it stimulus, spending but instead calls it investment. infrastructure, highway repair issues will create jobs and help obviously in terms of rebuilding the country. the president in the blue state of minnesota rather than going to red states, more republican states where health care may be unpopular. interesting. bill clinton as you know was in kentucky trying to help out alison grimes, a democratic senate candidate trying to take the seat currently held by republican mitch mcconnell. when senate majority leader harry reid was pressed on why president obama isn't going out to red states, he had an interesting answer. >> we have one president that's been going every place and that's clinton. he's traveling around campaigning for everybody doing a great job. >> there you have the top senate democrat suggesting the former president may be a better asset right now than the current president. bottom line, though, of course, we'll see president obama, current president, raising
voted to have a toll raise. there's a projected deficit of $142 million over the next five years. a rate hike schedule the toll is going to jump, and by 2017 it will be up to $7:# and then it will cost $8 to cost the golden gate bridge. mary curry is retiring. she's had the job 22 years. she plans to retire in april. she's going to do consulting work and will spend time with her parents and travel. she plans to keep a close eye on the bridge and any future changes. >>> more on protecting bicyclists. they want to raise the fine from $95 to $1,000. it would lead to fewer crashes. most crashes are accidental, so, they don't think it would change anything. >>> she could see russia from alaska. they're predicting the turmoil between russia and its neighbor. >>> she was determined to get to hawaii, one woman's multiple attempts to stowaway and new questions about security at sfo. >> let's take you outside, there is a look at the approach of are the richmond san rainfall bridge. roads are still wet. the cards coming at the screen, no problems to report in that area. it's a good morning to once
it was not a contributor to overall debt deficit. so i wanted to look at both access and containment. and he said i did it because he worried if he didn't do it then, there would never be no chance to do it. >> i think that's right. that has to do a lot with the book i'm writing about that so i looked at that pretty carefully. what i don't think he was able to do, and i use the term able very carefully because the political climate of getting even this bill passed was so tough. he had no extra votes. was to do much about containing costs. so the good news is that many of the thousands of people who wrote to me after the first article about horror stories being forced into bankruptcy or moving their loved ones because they couldn't afford healthcare. a lot of that has been fixed. >> rose: in terms of trying to get different ends meet and getting it through congress, on balance did they choose the right program. did they essentially put together what was necessarily for political consensus and get it through the congress. there were rnlt a lot of republican votes. >> i think they could have done it di
to go into deficit as well. russia is ofat to course oil prices. the government spends about 25% of gdp and to keep the budget in balance, capital economics needs 100 $10rice of about per barrel. they are able to get that just barely but as american fracking increases the amount of supply in the world, their chances of getting that are going down. a rush road ahead -- rough road at thisr the economy point. >> if it is such a rough road and all the weakness, why is he risking this? pretend to want to tell you what he is thinking, but maybe it is short-term here. compared to where the u.s. is. russia has a large amount of foreign exchange reserves. they can pay their bills for now even as the current account goes negative. resident who may be gambling if this lasts a short time, they could get in and get out without any further consequences, it is worth the risk. >> thank you. mike mckee. ofturn to another region uncertainty. president obama met with netanyahu at the white house yesterday. closelyries that work in the past and he looks cooked -- looks forward to working with the president
a lot of money, in part, due to the sequester, and it's led to lowering and lowering the deficit. if you put that in the context of what the budget proposal suggests, it's only a modest increase in spend, talking about 56 billion, like you mentioned, split between defense, nondefense, and it's paid for. we established that the budget agreed to by patty murray and paul ryan, those spending levels stay in place, and you'll use a few other tax hike is to par for $56 billion to relieve s sequestrati sequestration. we have a piece coming up that shows nih will be funded at 30.2 billion. that, in real term money, equivalent to the level that george w. bush funded nih in 2002. we're not making people whole. we're lagging pretty badly. but as if you were to look at what republicans are saying, this is the most reckless spending possible. >> sam, on that note, the president say, our budge it is about choices, about values and this is expected to go nowhere, it's a moral document in the most sort of clear fashion from the white house. at the same time, you know, the president puts this out there a
of the city as a whole so that we instead of seeing elderly new yorkers as a deficit, as a problem to be solved. instead we say the world is fundamentally a changing place, we're living longer, were living healthier and older new yorkers now are here in numbers that have surpassed anything in history. >> sreenivasan: one key ingredient to the initiative is listening to seniors, according to ruth finkelstein of the new york academy of medicine. she leads the initiatives private sector efforts. >> everything we do is grounded in the perspectives and voices of older adults. the first thing that they have to realize is we don't stand in the shoes of the people that were addressing and that we need first and foremost to understand the city through their perspective. >> sreenivasan: the program is now up and running in all five boroughs, including manhattan, where we met up with ed and sarah aarons. they cant imagine living anywhere but here. >> and i can't conceive of having the facilities and conveniences and the excitement as other places. >> the only two places he would like to live
a surplus when he finished his presidency that was turned into a record deficit by the republican president that succeeded him, so we are looking forward to having surrogates like president clinton and others stump for our candidates all across the country, and this week at the dnc meeting, we're going to be making sure that we can continue to focus on continuing our progress and helping to add value to elect democrats up and down the ballot. >> yeah. it is an interesting balance, as i mention, president clinton doing the stumping, hillary clinton doing a foreign policy event, she is down in florida today. these are not midterm stumping events. they've found a division of labor within the family for now. dnc chair debbie wasserman shultz, thanks for your time today. >> thanks, ari. >>> coming up, two years ago tonight, a story we all remember, trayvon martin was shot and killed. a tragedy that sparked a national conversation. we're going to talk about that case and the implications that continue to shape a lot of policy discussions. >>> but first, before we get to that, we have here today a

powerlines in africa. financial prudence dictates we reduce our deficits by not spending the money at all. if we must spend it and must choose between africa or america, mr. speaker, i choose spending it in america. america spends more than $40 billion a year on foreign aid, money we do not have, borrow to get and cannot afford to pay back. mr. speaker, if financial irresponsibility and economic insanity have a home, rest assured they live in washington, d.c. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from massachusetts seek recognition? >> unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman from massachusetts is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, two months ago emergency unemployment benefits expired for over one million americans, including 20,000 veterans and yet this house has not taken up legislation to provide these workers and families with necessary relief. mr. tierney: i rise to ask immediate action on the unemployment compensation act which pr
